nearly real time monitoring in log analytics for MSSQL policy scheduled backups
Currently there is no option to retrieve data in log analytics about scheduled backups in nearly real time.
All scheduled backups are collected every 6 hours which is useless for proper monitoring.
Please provide way how to configure recovery services in a way it will push data to log analytics right away as it fires scheduled backup job and update it in reasonable time interval until it finish. Similar as if you trigger it manually with backup now.
Or expose api / cmdlets to retrieve information about running scheduled jobs. With information like: Start time, end time, current status.
Estimation of job duration might be another field to consider.
I believe it needs to cover full and incremental backups, logs are not that interesting.
Ideally configurable per separate backed up item in this particular case for individual database.
